Prostrata, Japanese Plum Yew – 3 gallon container


A versatile, problem solving shrub whose long, dark green needles make it attractive for foundation or mass plantings. Tolerant of shade, heat and drought. Excellent for filling under tree canopies and areas shaded by tall buildings. Excellent low hedge.

Joseph take: Yews have been one of my personal favorites for many years.  In my early days I spent some time learning to grow the perfect yew from propagation.  It was not so easy as other shrubs but I figured it out.  I’ve always loved the texture, its a fun plant to touch as it’s very soft.  Like many plants that remind my of pines, its new leaves are much lighter during the spring flush.  In NC, I usually plant my Yews with some protection from the hot summers, in northern states this is unnecessary as they really prefer a cooler climate.
